Etiquette

These 10 hints will help make the planning of your wedding and the big day that much bettter.

1.
Thank You Cards are a must! 
2.
Figure out who is paying for what?
3.
Don't spend beyond your  means.
4.
Invitations, get them out and early.
5.
Bridal Shower Guest Lists, can't invite just anyone.
  • Many brides would love to invite everyone they know to their showers, but really only those on the wedding guest list should be invited.
  • BUT, there are some brides who have not been able to have a large wedding and so those throwing the showers have added a little note to the Shower invitation explaining the small wedding and that they would like to help them celebrate anyway!
6.
Deal with someone who knows about weddings.
7.
Personalize your wedding and reception, but do not make it tacky.
8.
Remember you and your new spouse are the host and hostess.
9.
Spend time at your reception and enjoy your guests.
10.
Calling off the wedding!
